Rating: 3 stars

Mallory Westbrook is ready to make her move on Jake Summerford, the boy—now man—she’s been crushing on for years. Coming back to Magnolia Sound to celebrate her great-grandfather’s birthday provides the perfect opportunity to show Jake that she’s no longer a child.

The last thing Jake expected to do at his mentor’s birthday party was to find himself kissing Mallory under the moonlight. Though he’s known her for years, the thought of kissing her never crossed his mind. But the shy tomboy he once knew is gone, and in her place is a woman he can’t resist.

They have one summer before they go their separate ways. Insecurity wars with the possibility of a future together, but it could all come to an end before it even has a chance to start.

Review:

Sunkissed Days is the prequel to a brand new series by Samantha Chase. It gives us a look into the things that happened between Mallory and Jack six years before the start of the first official novel, Remind Me, in the Magnolia Sound series.

My main issue with the prequel was how it read as a young adult novel to me. I love young adult novels to bits, so that’s not a shot at YA, don’t worry. It’s more that if I’m reading a book marketed as your average adult contemporary romance about a 20 year old and 24 year old, I’m not expecting them to act 15.

Mallory was playing games like a high schooler trying to get Jake’s attention and it kind of bothered me. Also her reaction at the end of the novel. You cannot convince me that girl is 20 and not 15.

The story line was interesting as a whole, and I’m looking forward to reading Remind Me when it comes out. I do want to know how their lives have progressed. And let’s be real, I want to read more about Zeke because that man is the wisest old guy you’ll ever read about.
